About this product
- Description'It is worth being shot at to see how much one is loved.' - Queen Victoria. Queen Victoria was attacked an astonishing eight times during her sixty-three year reign. Victoria's would-be assassins succeeded in changing the course of British history; whose penal system, legal system and policing would never be the same again. Taking the queen's mad, marginalized attackers as his starting point for an investigation of the entire era, Paul Thomas Murphy weaves elegantly through all layers of nineteenth century society and culture. A rollicking, riveting history, Shooting Victoria is the most multi-faceted story of Victorian Britain to date.
- Author BiographyPaul Thomas Murphy teaches interdisciplinary writing on Victorian topics at the University of Colorado. He is working on several projects relating to the Victorian period.
